Lazio director Igli Tare urged “positive thinking” in the Coppa Italia semi-final against Milan and welcomed a respite from injuries.

“It’s positive that we have Bastos and Luiz Felipe back in the squad, as we needed them. Finally we can emerge from this crisis of the last three weeks,” the director told Rai Sport.

“We hope to put in a great performance and win the game that will be important for qualification to the Final.”

This is their only remaining shot at silverware, as Lazio went out of the Europa League Round of 32 last week, 3-0 on aggregate.

“Obviously, we would’ve liked to have played against Sevilla with a full squad, and even then expected more considering how the two games went, but we have to look forward now.

“We need positive thinking and the support of our fans. Lazio will have a good campaign from now until the end of the season.”
